Yeah man use a 14 to 14 Male joint adapter. They fit snug at the mouthpiece.
actually have one of those so i could start out with this
forgot to mention tho,; would love to find something fixed
What i have done previously is attaching half the plastic fitting with duct tape to the joint of the bong xD
I actually got my volcano used, so it did not come with the grinder. I’m in New Jersey and the dispensary sold me a plastic grinder for three dollars that is just horrible. I can barely turn it, it’s so difficult. I was looking at the Santa Cruz shredder but went for the Golden gate because it had very good reviews and frankly was a lot cheaper.
I actually started using the grinder upside down to simulate a two piece last night and I’m really happy with the results! Keeping the kief in the mix instead of separating it out with the four piece grinder just works a lot better for me. Then I don’t have to worry about trying to add it back in afterwords.
I mostly start with whole bud and only break it down after 1-2 bags if it is a real dense strain, airy buds work great without any grinding - gives the best taste imo and lets me be lazy, win win maybe a bit less dense bags but not really noticable
@MegaMan2k - do u mean easy or solid valve? - how about a waterpiece with a 14mm male connection?
I have found this in internet, anyone have tried it before? Seems very intresting
The Volcano mouthpiece can be held against the opening of most water pieces, as seen in this video.
Solid valve and easy valve mouthpieces have the same profile/shape and they fit both 18mm and 14mm joints. 14mm works better for me, 18 feels sloppier.
Running more bags at once definitely makes sense, I had been letting it cool off in between bags so I’m sure that will make a difference. And thank you for going through the trouble of looking up my grinder. I can’t tell you how much it means to find a welcoming community during what can be a scary time.
And I’m glad you mentioned the difference strain can make in the ABV color. I really started noticing the hint of green when I changed to a new strain and I’ve been using that same strain since, so that’s probably part of the issue.
I have one and don’t use it as much as I should. It really does do wonders for your vapor tho especially if you are a cougher. It really shines at the higher temps.
I picked up the traditional red one, but the glass one cools down the vapor more still. These things DO WORK!!
My only gripe is I am not sure how I feel about getting water in my lungs. I mean it’s great as a novelty but daily driving? This is literally the only reason why I don’t use it as often.
Can anyone else add/object to this??
Hey by picking up a Volcano of all vapes you made an excellent investment! Everything gets compared to it, I think that says a lot.
I also read that you have a Solid valve so actually running bags would not be possible unless you have multiple (Solid valve) units.. alternatively you can just make a bigger bag when that time comes to rebuild.
This site has a ton of knowledge that I am sure you will appreciate
Don't forget... if cooling things off, remove the EZ valve and set it down near the unit to remain cool, as you turn Volcano off.... the residual heat rising further bakes the herb.
To keep dust out of the unit while the EZValve is off(it covers entire top to keep it dust free inside)..... see video at http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/volcano.220/page-46#post-557170
It works better when you cram it full with a nugget. You need to fill the capsule so air doesn’t just rush around the bud. I don’t have to crush or stir...just full extraction.
I forgot how much I like pulling from a bag through a bubbler. I hadn't used my Volcano in a while.
Yes, I do have the solid valve, and yes, the multiple bags was a misunderstanding on my part. I thought running multiple bags meant breathing in the first bag as fast as possible to get to the next one before everything cools off (smacks forehead). It sounds like I do need to make a bigger bag.
And you are absolutely right, there is a ton of excellent information, I’ve been looking through old posts a little every day. Part of the problem is “you don’t know what you don’t know”. I’m having trouble figuring out what to ask questions about - there are a ton of basic tutorials about the volcano, but learning how to fine-tune it has been really hit or miss.
Are you running a dosing capsule in the volcano? I thought they were just for the portable vaporizers? Does it work better? And I thought you were supposed to do a fine grind, how does an unground nugget get extracted, like the stuff in the middle?
To use S$B dosing capsules, you would but another EZ Valve made for that purpose.
You can get away cheaper just by buying the "insides" and change it on your EZ Valve by yourself, but it becomes a chore, when you wish to change back and forth between micro-dosing, and regular use.
You can also buy the needed p[arts to male one, by also buying a housing, and top screen....

I Personally just used the separate reducing chamber, and the regular EZ Valve for convenience.
Hey Beast-mode works just as well LOL
I really would recommend to you then, the EZ Valve setup. As Vitolo mentioned;
I have 2 also - a Reduced Chamber for me and a Regular Chamber for when I have company. I bet the reduced chamber will be exactly what you are looking for.
I didn’t buy my Digit with the Solid. Only because it seems like S&B is going more the EZ Valve route or seem to be pushing it more. They even have new bag valves that can be replaced. https://www.storz-bickel.com/us/en/easy-valve-balloon-with-adapter.html Making the once disposable EZ Bags reusable.
IMO Solid valves are more for people who are Veterans with their Volcanoes and I wouldn’t really recommend them to a newbie. But that doesn’t mean that by research or tinkering alone you won’t find the results you are looking for! The Solid valve was the only option with a Volcano for a long time when it made its debut.
It’s too bad you can’t just drop a Dosing Capsule in the Solid valve..
Can anyone confirm if this is possible or not?
Sorry to say it is a "not".
I had both for many years .... Solidf Valve and EZ Valve.
I had the solid valve 1st.
The very first time I tried the EZ valve was the last time I used the solid valve.
This has been the exact sentiment, and course of action as
every patient locally that I know, who had a Solid Valve.... but later tried an REZ Valve (and then permanently converted to EZ Valve use).
Thanks for checking on that, V! That’s good for future knowledge should I decide to get a Solid. I’m sure @arthritisbites will appreciate that also.
Hey everyone! I am about to pull the trigger on a classic volcano. Where is the best place to purchase one? I see that a few places were offering a free carry bag with purchase but can't find any that are still doing it. I know cost is pretty much the same all over so I am looking for someone to bundle a freebie or two with it.
Thanks for the advice!
Hey man!! Congrats on your decision!! This is the website where I got mine from:
(I actually got my Mighty from here also)
Use this code for an extra 20% off
Yep, when I bought my digit I got it from Vapor Nation and they threw in some stuff including the $59.95 carry bag but I see that's no longer offered.
It sounds like @Mr. Gusto Himself has a good line on 20% off which should easily cover the price of the bag.
Thanks for the info. That 20% off coupon is gold! That will cover the cost of the bag and at least something else. Probably a good idea to get one of the easy valve adapters so I can make my own bags. Any recommendations on brand of bag I should look for? Thanks again!
I would suggest getting those off the actual S&B website;
They’re the cheapest here. I’d get the unit from VapeWorld and the accessories from them (S&B)
@grnmtnvaper - This ^^ I believe.
I was trying the Volcano with extracts the other night using both the big ss pad and the crafty ss pad crammed into the reducing chamber. I used small amounts that usually do well in portables (like the Mighty) or rigs, but only got airy hits here. I felt like I'd need to put a lot more extract on there than I would use to get the thickness I wanted. Is it just me, or do any of you have the same thoughts?
I use the big SS pad, and I spread the concentrate around on it. I leave naked a centimeter around edges, as the hot wax will try to run from heat toward the edge.
I call it "buttering the pad".
I do not spread it on thickly....It is a thin layer, and it gives 2-3 bags of thick vapor.
Use too much on the pad, and it can get messy.
The spreading on the pad of the concentrate assures that hot air is hitting all of the wax at once.. and there are few gaps between which hot air can escape past your concentrate (causing the hits to be "airy").
